I was diagnosed with ibromyalgia about a year ago and and finally feel like I am getting back to normal. My husband and I are waitng to conceive in the next couple of months but I am really nerous about coming off of all my medications. I am currently taking Cymbalta, Gabapentin, Nifedipine, and Clonazapen. I am off of the Gabapentin and the only side effect seems to be tingling in my hands, but am super nervous about becoming depressed again and my insomnia.
